There is a great opportunity when becoming a member of The Business Community, you get the chance to book a 10-minute presentation slot at any of the business networking meetings. The only criteria is that it needs to be educational, not a sales pitch for your business - an ideal way to raise your profile within The Business Community and "show off" your knowledge and experience.
It doesn't have to be a Powerpoint presentation, screens/projectors and flipcharts are available at most venues or you could just orate without the use of either!
Tips for your presentation
- Share your knowledge/skill/advice
- If using slides – suggest no more than 10 (sometimes just standing up and presenting; maybe with a flipchart – can work better)
- No need to cover more than 5-7 points
- Allow some time for questions
- Consider handouts for delegates (at least in electronic format)
- Promote your presentation to people in your network so they can attend the meeting your at; in doing so raising your profile
I’ve been a member of the Business Community for many years now. I’ve got to know & develop relationships with a wide range of business people in that time. Networking is not a quick fix but it is supportive, encouraging and mutually beneficial. If you’re looking for somewhere to grow, not only your business, but yourself then I highly recommend you come along to these groups. They are exceptional value for money too.Heather Petty - UW
1 year ago I made the decision that I needed to start Business Networking. Scary stuff! Or so I thought. Walking into the meeting room for my first meeting was quite frankly, terrifying. I really shouldn’t have worried. I was immediately taken under the wing of one of the more experienced networkers. I can count a number of BusComm members as clients, and even more who have passed work my way. It’s important to note that there is absolutely no pressure to refer – so you truly know it’s on merit. It’s a fabulous community.Hayley White - VirtuHR
BusComm is a business networking group like no other. It's fun, friendly and focused. The support and advice available through the group is second to none.
I've gained business as a direct result of being a member. It has enabled me to find suppliers and contacts who have been able to help my clients.
I would highly recommend the group to anyone.Eleanor Lester - Shrewd PR
